Re: from scratch install of ibook
first the good news, the CD boots... and appears to work.
Now to the more difficult things.

Yes, I'm aware of the issues with Yaboot which is why we want to get rid of it.
It's unfortunately a bit tricky to get GRUB usable out-of-the-box on PPC Macs
as compared to IBM PPC machines.
I did not find the tutorials and just accepted everything the installer
proposed, inclusing partition sizes.
I tihnk to remember that the default partition sizes were for yaBoot and
too small for GRUB, however yaboot issues seem fixed. Read below.
Moreover there wasn't any valid entry in /etc/apt.d/sources.list
This will be resolved once we build updated installation images which are
based on Debian Ports.
I think I hit this issue earlier. I am using your netinst CD, thus I
suppose that eventually I need to download stuff from other mirrors.
During mirror selection I tried selecting different servers in Italy or
Germany and all fail. I checked in console 4 the log and see
"invalid Architectures in Release file for sid"
Of course, we don't want sid for PPC anymore, right?
Anyway, I yielded a booting system! that's also still a nice thing.
X doesn't work... some Xorg failure.. but that's a different issue,
let's check base abd boot stuff 100% first.
